I attended EuroVis 2015 last week in Cagliari, Sardinia. This is the second-most important conference in the academic visualization world, and there were plenty of good sessions to choose from (full and short papers, state-of-the-art reports, and industry sessions).

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the CHI 2015 conference in Seoul, South Korea. CHI technically stands for Computer-Human Interaction, but it has become a name rather than an acronym in recent years.

After a very successful Tapestry conference in February this year, we have been getting a steady stream of questions from people about another event next year. Now we’re finally able to announce next year’s event. And it will be awesome, again.
There’s no point in listing all the information here, since I also wrote the announcement posting on the Tapestry blog. But we have another great line-up for keynotes and short stories, there will be a demos session, and we will also have posters.
Tapestry 2014 will take place on February 26, 2014, in Annapolis, Maryland. If you’re interested in attending, request an invitation. We will again be limited to about 100 attendees, so don’t wait too long!

Tapestry is a new conference on storytelling with data. While it focuses on visual ways of telling stories in journalism, there will be a broad range of topics, and a line-up of amazing speakers. Continue reading Tapestry, The Conference About Storytelling With Data
